A summer music festival and fundraiser is being held to celebrate the hospice’s milestone.

It has been 35 years since St Luke’s Hospice first started caring for the people of Brent and Harrow, and now they are re-opening their doors to the community after a few quiet years due to Covid.

To celebrate the significant milestone, the hospice is inviting the public to a summer music festival at the start of July.

All proceeds raised from ticket sales will go towards fundraising which pays for the care of six out of 10 patients.

For over three decades, St Luke’s Hospice has been providing care for those who have serious illnesses, which are no longer curable - helping them to have the best quality of life.

From wellbeing services and care at home to an inpatient unit, the hospice has been supporting local people and their families in Brent and Harrow since 1987.
